More and more employers are recognising that the inclusion of people with disabilities is worthwhile: it opens up new potential for qualified staff and creates diversity in companies. And that is just what the Inclusion Prize for Business would like to show. It honours examples of good practice in training and employment of people with disabilities, but also in continued employment of employees with impaired abilities. Its objective: to encourage other employers to do the same and to provide impetus for more inclusion in business.
Good examples for more inclusion
The prize is awarded by the Charta der Vielfalt together with the Federal Employment Office, the Federal Confederation of German Employers’ Associations and the UnternehmensForum. The initiators are convinced that the idea of inclusion can best and most sustainably be conveyed through good examples – which is why they present the prizewinning examples of good practice to a broad public.
The prize will be awarded in 2019 for the seventh time. Since 2012, more than 200 companies from all across Germany have submitted applications for the award. This year, too, the jury is looking forward to many new best practice examples that show that Germany’s employers are strong on inclusion.
